Are you running 'Forest Prep' while logged on with an account that is a member 
of 'Schema Admins'?

The error looks like a permissions error.  Verify that the account is a member 
of that group.

Subject: [exchangelist] Forestprep Error !!

I have  only one Windows 2000 Server SP4 Domain Controller and a Windows 2000 
Server SP4 member server with Exchange 2000 Server SP3 installed. The Domain 
Controller have the 5 FSMO roles of the forest.

The windows 2000 domain and exchange 2000 organization are in native mode.

I run forestprep from the domain controller to upgrade the active directory 
schema before install Exchange Server 2003 and receive the fallowing error:

I search in Microsoft Knowledge Base about that error but don't find anything.

I think that is a permission problems in the GAL but I don´t know where to look.

Can anyone help me to resolve that please ?

Thanks !!!!!
